Medium green nail art full of windy patterns and a bold winter lion slowly turning into a gentle white lamb.

Lion of March

March 13, 2020 Lisa 2

March was supposed to come in like a lion (winter) and out like a lamb (spring). Instead it came in like a lamb and I gratefully hung my wool coat in the closet and swapped to lighter fare. I’m even shedding my cardigan by mid-day! Maybe that’s why it’s taken Read More

Warm rosy-brown nail art with little chibi Japanese girls in kimonos.

Spring’s Frost

March 12, 2020 Lisa 2

I’m back with a new look for #pantone2020summerchallenge and today’s Pantone color is Rose Brown. It is very aptly named. I decided to stick some little chibi girls in kimonos on top because I have an abundance of far eastern-themed stamping plates that I haven’t used yet. So…yeah…expect to see Read More

Pig Farm & Butterflies of the Sun

Pig Farm vs Butterflies – Two Simple Looks

March 8, 2020 Lisa 2

Probably by smell alone most of us would think to pick the butterflies (even though some of them eat poop!), but this is nail art so maybe you’ll like the pig look more. Then again…pigs are both delicious and make great pets, while butterflies can’t really do either of those Read More

Blue metallic nail art with tribal stamping decals in a light blue.

Tribe of the Bluestone

February 10, 2020 Lisa 2

I do love it when the title of the piece comes from something simple like the prompt that I used to inspire it. In this case, I combined #Pantone2019WinterChallenge’s Bluestone shade with my last unused Nee Jolie stamping plate: NJX-002, a tribal stamping plate. I’m actually still debating just destashing Read More

Soft peachy pink nail art with poppy reverse stamped accent nails.

Peachy Pink Poppies

February 2, 2020 Lisa 2

I’m back tonight with a soft floral look featuring Pantone’s Peachy Pink shade. I was really excited to make a look for such a pretty color and spent way too much time going back and forth through my stamping plate collection. But I finally settled on poppies because alliteration is Read More

Cold, dark nail art with black and grey crellies filled with aqua hex glitter and the frosty white spirit of a deer.

Winter’s Deer

January 29, 2020 Lisa 0

I managed to paint several manis in December that I didn’t have the energy to post. It worked out well because this one fit the prompts for both #NailsWithIgFriends’ Winter Animals (hosted by Tricia @artisanloom.nailz this month) and Catherine’s (@mrscronall) monthly prompt for 2020 #mymonthlynaturalmani’s Snowflakes. Products used Base Polishes: Read More

Blurple thermal nail art with skulls and skeletons and a blue and silver rhinestone.

Spooky Skeletons

October 29, 2019 Lisa 0

I put this design together for @clairestelle8challenge’s skeleton prompt, but I was just too slow to get it out. So I decided to hold it back for @glamnailschallenge’s skull prompt. Which in many ways is more fitting since the central piece of this design is a skull rhinestone that I Read More

A delicately gruesome zombie nail art using a translucent shimmery orange polish and soft metallic green zombies.

Zombie Apocalypse

October 17, 2019 Lisa 0

Today’s nail art is a combination of delicate and gruesome with zombies pulling terrible faces on a soft, glittery orange/magenta background. I’m sure they’re friendly zombies just trying to get out a hello around their rotting tongues…🤣 Products Used Base Polishes: Femme Fatale’s “City of the Sun“ with an acetone-thinned Read More

Red and gold metallic bloody vampire nail art for Halloween.

Vampire Hangries are Messy

October 13, 2019 Lisa 0

I mean…it’s bad enough being a regular human and getting hangry when your blood sugar levels drop. I can only imagine what it’s like for vampires… 😉 Products Used Base Polishes: Celestial Polish’s “The Blood is the Life“, Pretty Serious’ “Forbidden Zone“, and Sinful Colors’ “Sin-ammon“ Stamping Polishes: B. Loves Read More

Purple/pink magnetic polish with golden space cats stamped on top.

Cats Conquer Space – BP Review (stamping polish and plate)

September 25, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Today I’m reviewing two items from Born Pretty: a golden stamping polish called “In Fire” and a their space-themed Outer Space-L001 stamping plate. For my design I tried to cover all three uses of the polish: base, stamping, and filling in the stamping. The cat on my middle Read More
